The vast majority of people in North America know that crooked sheriffs, marshals, judges, deceitful educators and politicians have not given up their views of where society should be heading. Macdonald and Washington have given us starting points no one wants to repeat. They have given us something to work on. People know that war (even revolutionary or civil) and genocidal policies against First Nations are evils we want to avoid. In subtle and overt ways people acknowledge that starting over is God’s way when things go awry, but wanting to redo a revolutionary war, or a nation-building covenant are signs that people have stopped thinking and the story can only be told as another episode of a dog’s enjoyment of his vomit.
No place to hideIsaiah 24:17-18
17) Terror and pit and snare confront you, O inhabitant of the earth. 18) Then it will be that he who flees the report of disaster will fall into the pit, And he who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare; For the windows above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake.
Would you believe that capitalism sunk the boat of the kingdom of Judah and that xenophobia is a popular and universal waste of human energy?
A nation of immigrants will never accept all cultures because some are shaped by distasteful practices. Ancient traditions are not good because people have followed them for thousands of years. They need to be subjected to the scrutiny of impartial minds – a Herculean task in the new alternate truth environment. Nations and families need wise corrections not laws written in stone.
Nations and families need wise corrections not laws written in stone.
Since people in the United States cannot agree on what a 200 year old constitution says it must be obvious that agreement on interpreting laws that are thousands of years old will be equally unachievable.
Let us make sure we understand the turmoil unfolding in the winter of 2021. White men who have never admitted that the bloodshed of the American Civil War was over the evil enslavement of Black people are trying to say White people have been oppressed and it is now White people’s turn to be liberated.
Any way one slices the loaf a lot of White people, especially evangelical Christians, do not want to be humans. They think they are some kind of new Israel-Judah,
The windows and the foundations
From above and below, as Isaiah says, distress of mind and clings to the foolish bags of hot air trying keep the quagmire of empire and superiority alive. The fact of people calling themselves Judeo-Christian is proof that conservative views are regurgitated pipedreams. There is no such thing as a second chance in the levitical system; one strike and you are out, veen though that is not God’s way. There is nothing Judeo or Christian about murdering elected representatives of the people in order to satisfy the egos of a wicked businessman and a host of slogan slinging religious people. Assassinations and capital punishment are rejects in the march of civilized peoples, They and sinless Christians are vomit, because it takes sinless people to administer death sentences.
If anything violent breaks out in March the co-conspirators this time will include thousands of religious leaders in Canada and around the world now engaged in circulating vicious lies and promoting illiteracy in their chat groups and zoom conferences. Talk about dinner eaten twice!
